My Life is Like a Caterpillar ๐Ÿ›ย 

Gd morning, now I know that title seems weird and you wonder why I compare myself to this little creature.! Well let’s take a look, this morning while walking the dog, I came upon so many of them! They were all hanging out on this tree looking bewildered, sort of like me when my (crazy brain) takes control. Where do we go, what do we do, is this it? Is this where life is going to leave me, stuck on a rotting tree?  You’re just left there hanging, wondering, overthinking and feeling hopeless. Then, it happens as soon as life leads you to the cliff, you fall off and turn into a beautiful butterfly. Wow, just when you think life was over!!! Funny, know matter how life gets me down, there is always a beautiful moment right around the corner! All we have to do is hold on, so now you see how this creature is just like me!!! I’ve come to the end of the cliff so many times, then something beautiful happens. I’ve always said God is keeping me around for something. The caterpillar is ugly and sad like my thoughts, then they turn into these beautiful butterflies, my thoughts when I only think positive!!!  Hope this message finds someone who feels a little dark sometimes like me well,  we all will come out better in the end!!! Chat soon…

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. Iโ€™m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future.
